Chapter 1… January Goals

Chapter 1… January Goals

Let keep it real…I already know you are currently scrolling through you timeline, and this is all you see….”New Year, New Me”. Am I right? When you step into the new year you get to wipe the slate clean. It is a new you. For me instead of speaking in the universe  I decided that I am going to just do it, let the work speak for itself.  I am going to do the work and and let the results show for themselves.

All I have to say I am super motivated this year.  Quality work, better content, SIMPLY JUST DOING BETTER. If you reading this and you know me personally, I have been calling this year “The Year of Elevation”. Vision board done!  I am in full swing of bossing myself up, and TAKING MYSELF SERIOUSLY.  Yes so lets get into it… its about to go down so here what to come to FashionLayn!

Walking into the New Year.. snatching edges and dripping sauce!

Fashion Note

As of lately I have been living and breathing like fashion blogger. Digesting ALL fashion blogging content, while embracing myself in the process. If I am going to be bomb fashion blogger.. I have and need to take myself more seriously. So what I have been doing is styling myself and waking differently. A friend was telling me everywhere she goes she has to shut things down in the fashion sense. That is purpose when she goes to events. Like Tupac said All eyes all on me!  So with that being sad the fashion game is going all the way up. I want to be seen and approached when I walk through the door.

On another note, according to January issue of InStyle magazine the theme is Winter Outerwear, Chunky Sweaters/Varsity, Over sized blazers, and Cool Booties. January is going to be really chill, literally! So that what I am going to be giving y’all some cool way to style yourself for the winter! Maybe we can get a head start on the spring fashion

Blog Note

Like the cover says on Instyle “Start 2019 Like A Boss”.  That is exactly what my plans. January is by far my favorite month. My birthday is coming up, blog anniversary, and founders day (sorority).  We are definitely going to focus on fashion and how to style ourselves in the winter. You are already know I am a budget friendly girl. I currently don’t have any brand partnerships or collaboration at the moment. So I have a lot of great content coming to the blog. So stay tuned. Also don’t hesitate to follow me on Instagram and Facebook. I make a lot of great announcement on those platforms

Personal Note/ Goals

Lastly, I can not forget about myself. I have a lot of self improvements I want to make. I noticed in 2018 that I had a lot of work to do. If I am not at 100 then how do I expect for everything else to work out. So here is a glimpse of my goals for the month of January.

  1. Drink more water
  2. Finish up “Becoming” By Michelle Obama. I was supposed to be done with this book in January however I became very busy at the end
  3. Get my license and registration renew
  4. Finalize my birthday plans
  5. Lastly follow through with all my blog plans and stay organize

Welp we made it y’all !! My Lord we made it to the New Years and it such a blessing. 

The last few months has been so hard but it time to put the past behind us. Be present and think forward. Lol I want to really want to say “its the new year new me phrase”…. but I’m not gonna be cliche lol. I am going to put action to all the things I say. I really get to start over and make some things right. 

January is my favorite month especially for my blog. It my BIRTHDAY MONTH, not only that but its my BLOGIVERSARY, and I get to celebrate my SORORITY... of course so much more!! I have a lot of new ideas that have been brewing and they are going to be put into action.  This is call phase GROWTH for the blog. ( Last year was consistency… this year is growth).   Guess you can say they go hand and hand.

****If you only here for the fashion scroll down a bit to “ON THE FASHION TIP”


No current brand partnerships and collaborations at the moment…. but I plan to let my creative side take it away this month.  This month on the blog  I want to focus on being creative and show you budget friendly outfits. I normally keep everything budget friendly but it the theme of this month so ride with me. Let talk about shopping our closest together.  Putting some look together with what we already have. And using those gift cards ! Lets saves those coins because Christmas got some of our pockets short. I know my money is not long this month LOL. Lastly I want to get my fashion game up. Project Fashion Style Up in effect. I am a fashion blogger, thats what  do and I love fashion, but I want to get better. I got to come through for y’all and of course myself with the glow up.

Personal note:

I want to focus on living my truth. being honest with myself. Its really scary sometimes but I want to get honest stop wearing blinder to somethings. Face this shit head on.  Also get these finances in order. I AM TIRED OF CRYING BROKE !!! So let get the budgeting, and savings together. Lastly I want to let go of my past. I think some past issues are kinda haunting me. LET GO and LET GOD! I have to really mean it. 


Espirt booties Christmas Gifts 🙂 

Shop my look: Esprit Halona Lace Up Combat Booties (LINK) *** I got the deal they are super cheap… Click that link sis !

I am currently wearing the boot and they are super cute.  I saw them on Essie Golden’s page (of course check her out) and I had to have them. So, I am on her page like a stalker trying to find where she got the combat boots. She posted a link for  TjMaxx however they didn’t have my size. HELL they were all out. I just stop looking. However on Christmas they were under the tree.  Really they were under the tree Yess sis, OMG my mom got the same exact boots. Lord my momma got the gifts. The shoes are so bad ass. My favorite part of the shoe are the laces and lug sole. DONT GET YOU ASS KICKED LOL JK
